              Following on from the first volume, this is an international collaboration by psychotherapists and psychoanalysts who consider the impact of virtual reality on our society and the uses of communications technology for analytic treatment and professional training. Having examined ...the impact of communications technology on mental health and relationships, the authors explore its use in analytical treatment conducted on the telephone and over the internet, and review its problems and possibilities. They provide a multi-faceted view of it, an ethical stance in relation to it, and evidence from which to judge its effectiveness. Looking into the future they imagine a time when technology-supported analytic treatment may be not only convenient as a supplement to in-person treatment but also preferable for some patients and therapists in various circumstances.

              Every day we seek information from the internet, buy something, play videogames, chat, work, and so on. What is the nature of the space we surf in and through? Is it virtual or real? What is the actual relation between the virtual reality we inhabit more or less in a videogame, o...r a film, or a common experience on the Internet, and the psychic reality that is one of the main focus of psychoanalysis?What about the corporeality, time and space that we are accustomed to, considered as the vital component of subjective experience? What happens to the real relationship amongst people?The contributors and the articles presented in the book suggest that the main psychoanalytical theories are the most adequate means to understand the nature of the new subjects that appear in the present world on the Internet and cyberspace era.Not only psychoanalysis reads the multifaceted nature of virtual reality, but, on reverse, cyberspace also affects and influences seminal reflections about psychoanalysis itself and the virtual space of the mind.This timely volume, first published in Italian in 2013, explores the consequences of virtual reality in the analytical field and the peculiar characteristics of the encounter with the particular state of mind of internet addicted patients; it also shows in detail the path of the therapy, psychotherapeutic or analytic, and the path of the analyst with the net-surfer, a castaway in the realm of virtual reality. Considering all the points of view expressed in the book, cyberspace appears, on the one hand, as a mirror that traps vulnerable people in a pseudo-reality, while on the other hand it appears as a particular dimension which sets creative phantasy free. In any case, this dimension challenges us every day, while spreading out, alluring us, eluding us.

              Psychoanalysis Online 3: The Teleanalytic Setting is a highly topical, continuing conversation on the role of technology in psychoanalysis and its tremendous potential for outreach to patients in the global economy. It describes the essentials of a framework for teleanalysis that... is secure in terms both of technology and ethical stance. The technology is a third in the therapeutic alliance and its impact needs to be analysed like every other element in the field. Teleanalysis appears to some people to be a distancing methodology but the authors report surprising closeness across a distance. Teleanalysis offers a window into the analytic pair's experience of time, space, deprivation, fantasy, and physicality and shows unconscious dynamics displayed graphically on the image on the screen. The book looks at the convenience and impact of internet use among various communities including LGBTQI in terms of defense against and transition to intimacy, and gives clinical evidence of transformation made possible through the therapeutic aspects of technology.

              Screen Relations: The Limits of Computer-Mediated Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy

              Screen Relations: The Limits of Computer-Mediated Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Increased world-wide mobility and easy access to technology means that computer-mediated communication is being adopted rapidly and uncritically by Psychoanalysts and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists. Despite claims of equivalence between mediated and shared environment treatments..., there has been no research on the efficacy of technologically-mediated treatments. Can an effective therapeutic process occur without physical co-presence? What happens to screen-bound treatment when, as a patient said, there is no potential to kiss or kick? Our most intimate relationships, including that of analyst and patient, rely on a significant implicit non-verbal component, carrying equal or possibly more weight than the explicit verbal component. How is this finely nuanced interchange affected by technologically-mediated communication? The author draws on the fields of neuroscience, communication studies, infant observation, cognitive science and human/computer communication studies, finding the common ground where they intersect with psychoanalysis in their definitions of a sense of presence, upon which the sense of self is dependent, to explore these questions.To this emerging body of literature and research was added a collection of ethnographic key informant interviews with senior psychoanalysts experienced in computer-mediated treatment. This new data reveals surprising, and non-intuitive, elements.Based on these findings, the author makes a series of valuable clinical recommendations for practitioners using computer-mediation, helping them to anticipate the particular gains and losses of which they must be aware in order to be most effective.
